Ford mini SUV EcoSport - Now Launched

Discussion in 'Non FIAT Cars and two wheelers' started by Cuty Red, Nov 11, 2011.

  1. Friends ,
    Today I was talking to one of my friend @ Ford and when I said about the Punto 90 hp @ 7.7 lk .. he was mentioning about this mini SUV from Ford that they are planning to be launched in India by 2012 .. A sure competitor for XUV 500.
    Looks awsome !!

    Thread title is misleading IMHO. It should be FORD mini SUV to be launched.

    Title should be the Ford Mini SUV Ecosport.

    Ecosport has 1.6 Rocam Petrol Engine and 2.0 Diesel Engine in Brazil. If Ford is planning to launch the same SUV in Indian Market are they going to stick to the same engine specification? If YES then are they going to price this car at 7-8 lac?

    PS: I liked this SUV if is going to launch in India with 7-8lac price bracket I am going to buy this SUV :)
  5. Mods , Can you please change the title to "Ford Mini SUV Ecosport" ?

    Kedar , Infact the rumour is that this will be priced< 10 lk .and will be build on their existing sedan platform .But I was hesistant to quote this price because there was no valid news on the pricing and few sites like carwale etc etc showed the price to be 15K which wont be true since this SUV is supposed to be build in india .Because the much much bigger endeavour they are selling for around 20 lks .

    Yes Jayadev.. Last day I had parked my punto behind the Ford office and I was directing my location to friend as " I am right behind Fiat office.Come there .." and he was like "That is great news !! that Fiat is having a office in Chennai !! "

    Hope this fiatism lives long :)

    I believe Eco Sport would be diplayed in a Mumbai shopping mall over the weekend.

    Ecosport will be a huge hit if they price it properly... no doubt! It looks much better than the Xylo and baby xylo

    It's coming with a 1.0L Ecoboost petrol engine which will be joined by the new 1.5L petrol & diesel that power the Fiesta sedan.

    I don't think the 1.6L Petrol motor in Brazil is a Rocam engine. If it is then Ford can't launch it here as it will make people think that Ford has brought back a 15 year old engine from the Ikon and then sales will go topsy turvy.
